Seidel School of Education & Professional Studies

About Us

The Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies is grounded in a tradition of teacher preparation that began in 1925 as the Maryland State Normal School at Salisbury.  Endowed in 1997, as the Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies, SU was one of two universities across the nation to receive an endowment. 

The school since its inception as a Normal school has expanded its programs to include nationally accredited and recognized programs in Athletic Training, Exercise Science, and Social Work.  Known for programs that “make a difference” in the lives of others, the Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies prepares  students for careers that  provide initial and continuing education that ensures professionally competent teachers, health fitness providers, athletic trainers, social workers and school administrators. 

Through our commitment to  rigorous coursework and experiential  learning via extended clinical practice with community based partners our graduates become cooperative, innovative leaders dedicated to community service and excellence.

All the school's programs interface with the community in special and unique ways and rely on community institutions, agencies and settings for the field components. Whether in teacher education, health fitness, physical education, social work or other programs, the integration of theory and practice takes place in field sites generously provided by the University's surrounding community.
